57167 roof of the world.

It is late May. The sun is warm, but the air is cool. We are surrounded by snowy peaks as we come to a wayside stop on the Georgian Military Road at the high point of Jvari Pass. Next to the graves of the German prisoners of war who built this road, trailer trucks rumble by as a flock of crows passes overhead, on their way to who knows where.

57156 paternoster.

Occasionally, I see a person or two standing, waiting. The alternating bright and dark, an ebb and flow of light, a lugubrious pulsation, makes a mechanized mockery of sunrise and sunset from these quick false days and nights. …

57137 bells of sapânţa.

It is obvious to the workmen of the Cimitirul Vesel, the “merry cemetery” in Sapânţa, Romania, that I am curous about the bells. I approach them, study them, tap them gently with a knuckle to guess how they might sound. Suddenly, one of the men puts down his shovel, strides over and begins to ring the bells with full abandon.

The jaunty blast of the amplified polka rolls off the old Renaissance town square, and townspeople spin like coupled tops to these words, „Let the others go whitherever they want, to Vienna, to Paris or London. But for my part, I will not depart from Lwów. … Tylko we Lwowie!“

57117 inner workings.

I felt a mild fluttering in my stomach as we passed the final black line. I knew no harm would come to me, but nonetheless I was overcome by the inevitability of that turning motion, its fatedness. Had I wanted to, I could not have stopped it.

“Are you asking me the way?” “Yes,” I said, “since I can’t find it myself.” “Give it up! Give it up!” said he, and then turned with a sudden jerk, like someone who wanted to be alone with his laughter.

57092 mountain of song.

Our driver abruptly comes to a stop there. We are at a roadside eatery, pressed between the winding highway and the mountain face, right next to a raging stream in rapid descent to the valley floor. “How long do we stop?” we want to know. “As long as it feels good!” is the reply. …

1. Sonified weather data from the city of Philadelphia. 2. Magnetic spectrum data of a so-called ‘singing comet.’ 3. ESA launch of a Sentinel satellite, altered. 4. Field recording of distant bells as heard from the Betlemy neighborhood of Tbilisi.

57072 marks.

The walls of the buildings in Tbilisi, a city repeatedly conquered, flattened and rebuilt during the course of its history, are striking not only for the copiousness of their handwritten marks, but also for the way they hint, in foreshortened form, at this old city’s profoundly layered and multiethnic history.

Late evening, the traffic lessens and the bleat of motorized vehicle horns gradually subsides.

Field. This brief journey takes us along for three stops on the metro in central Tbilisi. Starting with the cheerful electronic card readers, we move on to the rumble of the two-minute-long escalator ride, the glassy plink that calls the stops and the roaring metallic din of the train ride itself.

57056 peths of pune.

In the old peths of Pune, the traffic is relentless. Endless motorbikes compete with push carts, rickshaws, and buses, each wheedling for just an inch more of space. A pedestrian must put his faith in their drivers, for progress is impossible if you stand petrified at the street’s edge.
